How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants last a few decades or longer—sometimes for life. However, upkeep plays a critical role in their longevity.

Dental implants in Annapolis, MD, are made of solid titanium that mimics your lost tooth root. These titanium posts can integrate into bone after they’ve been implanted by your dentist, giving you a solid foundation for replacement teeth or prosthetics like dentures.

To keep your dental implants in top shape, it’s essential to practice healthy habits and visit your dentist on schedule.

To help increase the longevity of your dental implants, we recommend:

  • Seeing your dentist twice yearly for comprehensive dental checkups and teeth cleanings
  • Brushing and flossing your teeth after every meal or at least two times each day
  • Talking to your dentist if you notice oral health changes
  • Wearing the proper nightguard if you’re diagnosed with bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • Wearing the appropriate mouth gear or mouthguard during athletics

Remember, even if you change your replacement tooth (dental crown) or implant-retained denture in the future, your implant posts should still be intact.
